I am married man with age 24. I have a problem that am masturbating still 3 or 4 times daily. I can control this habit. I used to do it in home, office and sometimes in public secret areas. Is there any problem for this? Am having normal sex with my wife. But if I saw a sexy girl might be my colleague I wants to masturbate. Did I need to consult a doctor. Is it a common thing. Please let me know.

The frequency for a married man is not normal, and that for every sexy girl you see, if you have to masturbate then you are addicted to it. You may seek the help of a sexologist and /or counselor to process this drive. You could be obsessing abut sex too much that it will finally lead to compulsive masturbation. In other words there is really very little sexual gratification as much as the mere routine of the addictive need to masturbate. You must develop control and besides you have a wife with whom you can share a good heterosexual contact and intercourse. why would you want to go for a poor replica of the same thing!?

I am a 31 year old female, I am professionally very successful, I am suffering from ocd. I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder when I was around 9 and have been on and off medications, there have been times when I was completely perfect. Over the last one year my symptoms have flared up and I have been prescribed 40 mf fludac in the morning and 20 mg int he evening and 25 mg prothiaden (Since last one month), prothiaden makes me sleepy so I take 1/2 tab every evening. I have to take zapiz 0.25 on need basis, before my periods, my symptoms aggravate every month. I need help and I want to get cured. Please help.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Poulomee, It looks your anxiety, OCD and premenstrual aggravation, times of completely perfect are symptoms of Recurrent Major Depressive Disorder. In that case, you may need a mood stabiliser in addition to Fludac. If you maintain a mood chart and note your early morning mood daily in that, it will be useful to diagnose in the long run. Right now, please do not stop Fludac, Prothiaden and Zapiz. Add talk therapy to it. Talk therapy goes for weeks preferably with the same therapist. Get your hormone levels checked up.If there is an imbalance, correct them with appropriate medicines.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Depression, panic disorder, ptsd and general anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. I wish to know who diagnosed you? the process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

I am forgetting so many things these days even I am forgetting my keys my wallet and etc. I don't know what is this but I think its a side effect of any thing so can you suggest me why this is happening to me? What are the precautions I have to take?

General Physician,
YOu have to check if you have any disease by doing a blood CBC and TSH and inform me .Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

The following suggestions are intended to help overcome temporary insomnia and maximize the chance of getting a healthy night's sleep: 1) make your bedroom an inviting place. Keep the room free of clutter and distractions. Be sure you have the right bed and mattress for your needs. The wrong mattress can lead to musculoskeletal problems and sleep disturbances. 2) use the bed only for sleeping. Avoid use of the bed for watching tv, eating, working, or any other activities. If you do wish to use the bed for a bit of nighttime reading, read only pleasure books in bed. Therapists often use" reconditioning" as part of a treatment plan for insomnia. With this method, people are" reconditioned" to associate the bed with sleep. If you find yourself unable to sleep at all, get out of bed and move to another room, so that you only associate the bed with sleep and not with wakefulness. 3) establish a regular sleep-wake cycle. Your body will learn to set its internal clock to your schedule and will eventually respond to internal cues to become sleepy at a given time and to awaken at a given time. A good way to begin this is by getting up at the same time every morning, even on weekends. 4) don't nap. No matter how tempting it may be, an afternoon nap can make falling asleep at night even harder" extra" sleep on weekends can also throw off your regular sleep schedule and worsen midweek insomnia. 5) limit your consumption of caffeine in the afternoon and evening. Remember that eating chocolates and drinking cocoa and colas also are sources of caffeine. Watch your alcohol intake. Don't drink any alcoholic beverages in the few hours prior to going to bed. Excessive amounts of alcohol at any time in the day can also disrupt sleep patterns and lead to unsatisfying sleep. 6) cigarette smoking can also worsen insomnia. 7) fit in some exercise during the day, but don't exercise strenuously right before bedtime. 8) eat light meals in the evening. Eating heavily in the evening or eating just prior to going to bed can disrupt your sleep. 9) establish a" winding down" ritual in the evenings just prior to bedtime. Try to free your mind of distracting or troublesome thoughts and engage in a relaxing, enjoyable activity like reading, listening to music, or watching a pleasant film. For people with chronic insomnia, a type of therapy called cognitive-behavioral therapy with homeopathic medicine may help reduce anxiety linked to insomnia, such as anxiety about sleep loss. Studies have shown that the effects of cognitive behavioral therapy with homeopathic medicine are more long lasting. For depression and inferiority complex you need some counselling sessions with homoeopathic medication, you will be alright after few weeks.

Hi lybrate-user, I know how hurting it is to see your love and best friend involved with each other, it will get time to get rid of that feeling. But you its good you came to know about it so now stay away from them. What they did was betrayal and the best revenge is not get bothered and move on. You are young and will have many meaningful relationships. They do not deserve your time, attention and energy. Karma will take care of it. Consult for counseling, learn to manage the stress you are facing through therapy. All the best.

Causes and symptoms of Delayed Speech

Senior Residency, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Causes and symptoms of Delayed Speech

It might happen that you may not find your child, at twelve months to two years of age, at the same level as their peers in verbal communication. You think it's just a developmental problem they are facing and put off seeking professional advice; an intrinsically wrong step to take, because your child might be suffering from Speech Delay.
Delayed speech, or alalia, can be roughly defined as a delay in the development and use of the biological mechanisms that produce speech.
The symptoms of speech delay are roughly categorized into age related groups, generally beginning at the age of 12 months and continuing through the early adolescence, and they are:
1. Age-12 months
a. It is indeed a symptom if your child cannot point at objects or cannot manage gestures, such as waving good-bye.
b. Another symptom is that if your child does not prefer to communicate verbally as much as his/her peers.
2. Age-15-18 months
a. If your child is unable to pronounce familiar syllables or simply cannot call you even by this time, it's a worrying symptom.
b. You find your child unable to, or simply not reciprocating to 'no', 'hello', 'hi', 'bye'.
c. If your child is unable to extend his/her vocabulary up to 15 words by fifteen months, then it's a symptom.
3. Age-2-4 years
a. You find your child unable to spontaneously produce speech and words.
b. Another worrying symptom is if your child is lacking consonant sounds at the beginning and end of words while speaking.
c. If you still find your child unable to form simple sentences and words, then it is indeed a troubling symptom, confirming the disorder.
The causes for the speech delay disorder are:
1. A primary cause can be physical disruption in parts of the mouth such lips or palate, which may be deformed.
2. Another serious cause can be an oral-motor dysfunction which is the disruption in the creation of the specific area of the brain which deals with speech and communication.
3. The disorder can also be attributed to impairment in the development of the child's intellectual, receptive and expressive abilities.
4. There can also be psychological causes involving school environment and peer relationships which might lead to disruption of speech patterns and reluctance in speech expression and development. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My husband is 47 years old. He takes alcohol in the interval of 30-120 days. Once he starts drinking alcohol means that continues for at least one week.

If your husband loses control over his behaviour and if he is aggressive after consuming alcohol, then that is a cause of concern. He needs de-addiction treatment. Please take him to a doctor when he is sober. The doctor will prescribe some medicines for him to stay away from alcohol and also to treat withdrawal symptoms if any. He needs medical and emotional support.

I have a lot of anger management issues. Any suggestions? Can my diet affect it too?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Diet may have some effect but not much. At your age, this development is quite significant because during this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone, there are three identified features that present itself over which you will have poor control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you have unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that you may not be aware of all this. Your anger is probably related to some deep rooted anger that you are carrying from your childhood. It is probably being provoked further by a spurt in the production of the male hormone testosterone, mentioned earlier. After that, it will subside and stabilize. Discuss with your parents whether they are aware of anything that might have provoked this anger from your childhood. Then either by yourself or along with your parents do meet with a counselor and discuss the same. The counselor will educate you about emotions and help you develop skills to express your anger in appropriate ways. You need anger management classes but you also need to know of its origins. Exercise is a very good way to expend the energy of anger so that it is under some control. But it still needs to be expressed. With regard to expression, it is better if you just spoke about it and gave it vent. No physical action of violence is acceptable and definitely, you should not treat your parents to any kind of aggression. Even if your anger is justified, violence is not the way. Finally, if you are a spiritual person, it is possible to hand over your anger to God to deal with it for you: it works really well.

Hi lybrate-user, it is good that you have quit tobacco pan masala. It is likely that you have a condition called as osmf (oral submucous fibrosis), wherein, there are reddish lesions on the inside the cheeks, and mouth-opening becomes extremely limited due to decreased elasticity of tissues in the mouth. Although you have quit tobacco, it will take some time for your mouth opening to get normal; and you will be required to do some mouth exercises. In many cases, medicines need to be injected directly into the lesions (intra-lesional injections), which brings about quick improvement. I suggest that you consult me privately on lybrate. In private consultation, you will be able to show the pictures of your lesions to me, and I will be in a better position to solve your query. I will also be able to guide you on how to perform mouth exercises on video consultation. Take care.
